Snow in Evergreen!!!!!

On October 4th I posted pictures of the golden Aspen trees outside our window and wondered when we would see our first snowfall. Well this morning when I got up it was sprinkling, and then those drops slowly turned to snow and it kept snowing, snowing, snowing... and I kept taking pictures. I believe we're received not more than an inch of snow and it's already stopped. But it's so beautiful! Here's some pictures for your enjoyment.

It started like this....

 And then it became like this....

Our last day of snow was May 18th....our first day of snow is October 12th. Yea, snow!!!!!

That is amazing and beautiful!

My backside would be huge if I lived there as the temptation to eat hearty stews with big buttery slabs of cornbread and drink deep bottomless mugs of hot chocolate would never leave if the weather looked like that for much of the year.

How about a photo update today ... is it still there?

Is that the view from your windows? The one with the mist between the valleys of the hills?

How totally inspiring!

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
